Dancing at a Book Party

dancebp.jpgLast night GalleyCat stopped by the powerHouse Arena in Brooklyn, for a night of wine, music, dancing, and books. At the party, the dancers in the photo cut loose to celebrate “Blues, Booze, & BBQ” by Michael Loyd Young–a photographic journey through the Mississippi Delta.

Bluesman T-Model Ford (pictured) played a long, gorgeous set in the middle of the bookstore, grinning like he won the lottery while Brooklynites danced.

While everybody else danced, this GalleyCat editor chatted with Mike Edison about his holiday-themed book trailer and grilled new author Eric Davidson about his upcoming book, “We Never Learn.”

At the halfway point, in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, sits Clarksdale, Mississippi, the city considered the birthplace of the blues and the location of Robert Johnson‘s famed ‘Cross Road Blues’ intersection of Highway 61 and 49.”
